in Largo, FL |
Dr Fansler has operated on me a couple of times, and I was very satisfied with his skill and Doctor patient relationship and would not hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends
in Seminole, FL |
He did surgery on me at Largo Medical, he even told me this may not work, and it turned out he did not do the surgery correct the first time, I tried to book a follow up for him to fix the situation, and he is overbooked for like over 2 months. So he is unavailable to fix his own mistake in my surgery, so I have to go somewhere else (which is probably for the better). He has a reputation for overbooking from what I heard.
